-- whereas governor hassan is lockstep with hillary clinton. jean: while senator ayotte says she'll vote for donald trump, she says he won't endorse him. she was pressed on whether he's a role model for children. senator ayotte: i think that's certainly, there are many role models we have, and i think he can serve as president, so, absolutely i would do that. , governor hassan: what you just heard is senator ayotte trying trump which she does from time to time but at the end of the , day she's gong to vote to put him in the situation room with access to our nuclear codes. jean: they debated their differences of opinion, including repealing the affordable care act nominating a , supreme court justice, and expanded background checks for gun buyers. senator ayotte: i fully support those who are too dangerous to
but we have to mechanism for , people who believe they're wrongly on that list. governor hassan: senator ayotte has had little opportunities to make our country safer and to stand up to terrorists, to vote for an expanded background check bill, and she has declined to do it. jean: and they talked about the ayotte campaign handing out condoms to college students this weekend she says to highlight her call for expanded access to birth control. >> this is an idea to allow women to access birth control with fda approval and safety in mind, over-the-counter. >> but it would take away the requirement that insurance companies actually cover birth control. jean: a lot of reaction to condom campaign move planned parenthood saying senator ayotte has a record of obstructing birth control, while the ayotte campaign is that is not true.

tom: well granite state dairy , farmers are struggling to stay a float after enduring a dry season and low milk prices. now many say they could use some help from the state. shelley: kristen pope spoke two shelley: kristen pope spoke two different farms, one who is in with an uncertain future. kristen: here on shirley road, max benedikt operates a small farm. he makes money from whatever he sells. but this year profit has been , struggle. and he says a little assistance would help. >> we're bleeding out tens of thousands of dollars over a season like this. we're in a situation where really we are short of feed. the feed is lower quality. the output of the cows is less. kristen: the benedickt farm and others dairy farmers like tom marston are suffering directly
are definitely limiting what we can do. kristen: and for most farmers, the hit affects more than just their business. it also affects their families. the marston family have been farmers for nine generations. >> my grandchildren, if, in fact, they are still there, can be. kris , attended a meeting with lawmakers in concord hoping to get some relief. an emergency fund was created for dairy farmers in 2008 and never funded. now marston says the state needs to take action fast. >> we are asking for them to move the money from one place to the other and disperse it equitably. >> so much of what we do is not just paying attention to make a profit for ourselves. it's to enrich in the landscape every one lives in and that,
greater community, through something like the emergency funds. kristen: benedict says despite the financial squeeze, he says not giving up, whether help comes or not. >> failure is not an option for us. we're pretty young. we just started out five years ago so we're in for the long , haul. that's not an option for us and we are just going to keep going. kristen: 100 farms have shut down. in goffstown, kristen pope, wmur news 9. tom the boston pops will be : taking over boston's fourth of july celebration. the orchestra announced the change today as longtime executive producer david mugar steps down after 43 years. the event is one of the nation's signature fourth of july celebrations, pops conductor keith lockhart says this will give the pops the best chance to control the event's fate, pops is currently looking for sponsors to fund the event. shelley: tonight, new hampshire's young professionals were recognized at an awards ceremony in bow.
organization that encourages 20 and 30-year-olds to stay or come live in the granite state. and tonight's annual event celebrated people and groups that are recruiting and retaining young people. >> we work really closely with all the young professionals networks throughout the state. there are 15 groups at this point, so lots of representatives from those groups are here. we have past winners, all the finalists, judges are a whole bunch of different people. so we try and pull from different segments. shelley: and the organization says about half of the state's in new hampshire. tom: all right, we are keeping -- we are just hoping for the best for the people of 80. mike: you look at different sectors, and the eastern sector is the worst. unfortunately, that is not going to affect them tonight but right through the day tomorrow. it is tough around here. a little bit quieter, although we started off with some fog. it is kind of murky.
you also notice as it started to threaten the area, some fall weather. not that bad in terms of the fall foliage. on average, up to 50% across the state right now, a couple of downpours moving through over the last several hours, but just about all of those are fizzling out, and not much left over in doppler radar. you can see if you more sprinkles between now and midnight, 1:00 that, mostly cloudy with a little bit of fog. statewide, seasonal. a couple of spots just a bit about that, like in nashua, 60. on average, upper 40's in rochester, lower 40's elsewhere. now, for the next couple of days, a great stretch of weather. we have a chance of some fog lingering even through midday tomorrow, and then we will start to see this area sliding off to
northwest, and that means plenty of sun by later tomorrow and even more wednesday, thursday, friday, and even early on saturday. as for the highs tomorrow, a little bit cooler than today, upper 50's at the coast, generally about 60 to 65 elsewhere. at the shore, a little bit warmer. wednesday, upper 60's to around 70, and then well into the 70's thursday, friday, and saturday. now, here isup matthew. the wind has increased, now up to 145 miles per hour, the wind gusts up to 160 miles per hour. take a look at the track. it is a slow jog to the north. that means devastation over a good portion of 80. it barely scraped jamaica. the eastern half, at least tropical storm conditions if not some gusts to hurricane force, and then the eastern parts of cuba, yes, they are under the gun.
the northwest as an area of high pressure builds just to the east of the center and causes it to move off in that direction. the bahamas right under the track. and that it is a slow jog towards the florida coast line. after that, all bets are off. in terms of the projection towards new england, it all depends on where the center is early on friday. the farther north that is, the better shot it has to get drawn up from the west. if it is still stuck down here friday night, early saturday, it has no chance to get up here, because that same trough that is moving in will kick it out to the, -- sea, and you get the idea we still have to track it for the next few days. here are the computer models, all of these mathematical equations. that is what each one of these lines is. nearly consistent through
are quite a bit, some to new england, but some out to the sea, to our east. right now, that is the favorite track, south of new england, but no impact here. but keep in mind, if the storm starts to accelerate north, into the bahamas by wednesday afternoon and into the northern portions of florida by thursday night and friday, then we really have to watch it around here. the window of opportunity, if any, for new hampshire would come and saturday night tgh showers with that weaker system, as i say in from the west. any things could change, so stay tuned. shelley: and our thoughts for the people of haiti. mike: it will be tough.
jason: all right deflategate is , officially over, and tom brady is back with the patriots, while brady was serving his 4-game suspension, new england went 3-1, including yesterday's 16-0 loss to buffalo. brady will make his first start of the 20 16th season in cleveland on sunday. wax it is going to be great. i mean, one of the best players on the team, a guy that leave us. it is going to be good to have him back. so, yes. we are in the postseason. 10 teams made the playoffs, and one of them is just 11 victories away from winning the world series. the wildcard games play out in the next two days. the red sox begin their playoff run on thursday. here are the game times. the indians secure home field for the division series, meaning games one and two will be in cleveland on thursday and friday. the series will shift back to
sunday's start time is 4:00 p.m., monday is still to be determined. if the series goes 5 games, they'll head back to cleveland for game five on october 12. all right, here are the matchups for the wildcard games. tuesday night at 8:00, and the nationally, the giants play at the mets on wednesday. former dartmouth college pitcher kyle hendricks finished the 2016 season as major league baseball's era leader at 2.13. hendricks, one of the top candidates in the national league cy young race, finished the season with a 16-8 record, helping the cubs to the major's best record 103-58. ,so chicago will have home field throughout the national league playoffs. all right, high school sports. how about field hockey?
